First Pitch Scheduled for July 3rd

The 2009 Canada Fastpitch Tournament is slated for July 3rd-5th as Canada Day falls on a Wednesday and we chose to host the event the weekend after the holiday. The 2008 tournament was considered a success as there were a dozen teams participating including teams that travelled from Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia to compete for the $5,000 first place prize money. The Regina Hawks downed the Prince George Black Sox in the final game in a thriller, but what fans noticed the most was the measurable improvement in the skill level from previous years.

The original tournament was called “July First” and was started by Charlie Ghostkeeper over 40 years ago. Last year the Regina Hawks beat the PG Black Sox and both teams have indicated that they will be back. The 2009 edition of the long running tournament will include Treaty, Midget and Bantam Divisions allowing more teams to participate at a comparable level at the Northern Fastpitch Capital of Canada.

This website will be maintained to allow all tournament participants, volunteers and fans stay up-to-date. This website will also be the portal for game broadcasts of all evening games and the medal games on Sunday afternoon. Leading up to the tournament, look for weekly updates on this website.

We’re lucky to have him out West again and we should all get out and watch him any chance that we may get to see the BEST pitcher of all time! He will be playing for the Horse Lake Thunder this year and the team will be attending the Senior “A” Canadians, Native Canadians and the ISC Championships
